Good morning! I planned to do a food review on Silverspoon Cafe.Restaurant today but I guess you all might be bored looking at food pictures posted on this blog all the time. So, I decided that I am gonna do a full compilation of the skincare products which I bought from Miri last weekend. They were not as much as how much I used to buy on my previous Miri weekend trip in October but I was still being scolded for buying too much and not even bothered to throw away the boxes before going through Custom at Sungai Tujoh Checkpoint. Friend had always reminded me to throw away the boxes so that I won’t be liable for any customs tax and duty when returning back to Bandar from Miri. But the thing is, I like to bring back my skincare products as a whole instead of the body without the cloth on. Hahaha … And thank God, I managed to get by safely this time as well without getting taxed.
My most expensive splurge on my last weekend trip in Miri was a bundle set of 3 products from Kose at the price of RM347. I actually wanted to get the Kose Sekkisei Lotion 360ml alone but the BA at Kose told me that they ran out of stock for 360ml as they were all being transferred for the sale of bundle set deal. So, I have to buy the bundle set deal out of no choice. But not completely though, since I used the other two products from the bundle set deal as well.
Kose Sekkisei Lotion 360ml | RM255
Kose Sekkisei White Powder Wash | RM124
Kose Sekkisei Lotion 100ml
The BA made a mistake with the display of the bundle set deal. When I first saw the deal on display, it was RM347 which comes with Kose Sekkisei Lotion 360, Kose Sekkisei White Liquid Wash and Kose Sekkisei Sun Protector N. But in actual fact, the above deal was actually priced for RM400+. So, the actual products given for RM347 deal is Kose Sekkisei Lotion 360ml, Kose Sekkisei White Powder Wash and Kose Sekkisei Lotion 100ml. It still sounds great to me since it’s the Kose Sekkisei Lotion which I wanted and Kose Sekkisei White Powder Wash works great on my skin as well. So, it’s still a win-win situation.
As I had almost used up all the cleansing oils which I bought last October, I came back for more cleansing oils this time. But unfortunately, the selections were not as much as it used to be. I wanted to repurchase Kanebo Freshel White C Cleansing Oil, but it was not available at any Kanebo Freshel counters at both Boulevard Hypermarket and Parkson Bintang Megamall. So, I bought Shiseido Aqua Label Deep Clear Oil Cleansing from Boulevard Hypermarket. I wanted Shiseido Aqua Label Moist Cleansing Oil actually, but it’s not available at Boulevard Hypermarket.
I was browsing for Senka and Pure Beauty products at both Guardian and Watsons. But unfortunately, both of them do not carry what I wanted. Senka products are probably only available in West Malaysia and Singapore. Watsons in Miri do have Pure Beauty but they do not have the Perfect Cleansing Oil. So, I got myself a bottle of Biore Cleansing Oil.
Biore Cleansing Oil | RM19.55
I also bought two pieces of SexyLook sheet masks from Watsons with my purchase of Biore Cleansing Oil. Super love the brand after I had tried their SexyLook Pure White Radiance Duo Lifting Mask. Wanted to buy one whole box of their sheet masks but unfortunately, none of the beauty store in Miri carries one whole box but they were all sold at individual pieces at the price of RM5.90 each.
I had also requested Ing to get me some L’occitane hand creams from L’occitane on her last trip to KK two weekends ago. I wanted Spring Cherry Hand Cream but the BA told her that it was out of stock so I requested for Lavender and Shea Butter. These hand creams were made ideally for traveling purpose of 30ml each. They were priced at RM38 each at any L’occitane outlets across Malaysia.
L’occitane Lavender Hand Cream | L’occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream
And finally, one last piece of skincare product which I bought last weekend – My Beauty Diary Cooling Mask. I bought this from a shop which specializes in Taiwanese brand skincare products. I couldn’t remember the name of the shop but I remembered that it’s located just right next to the shop selling products introduced on My Queen (女人我最大).
My Beauty Diary Cooling Mask | RM39.90
The original retail price is RM39.90 but it’s currently on 20% discount on majority products sold in the shop. So, I got this for RM31.92. Which I think is super dirt cheap when one whole box of My Beauty Diary sheet masks is sold for about B$26.90 in Brunei. But of course, My Beauty Diary Soothing Mask is still not available in Guardian Brunei. But nevertheless, it’s still cheap.
So, till we meet next time. Hope I did not bore the hell out of you. xD
